ESR1: Quantifying Privacy with Application to Mobile User Interaction



The specific research topic of this position is to develop theory and methodologies to quantify privacy in the context of data (traditional biometrics as well as touch and movement patterns, soft biometrics, and context information) acquired through the interaction of the user with mobile devices. A systematic study of the state of the art will be carried out. Multimodal datasets containing mobile user interaction data will be collected. New methods and metrics to better quantify privacy will be proposed and applied to the biometric data under consideration in continuous authentication schemes.
